q6600 Temperatures - Page 2

Try to re-install your HSF with AS5 mate and make sure you put a very small amount of thermal paste. You can check the instruction on Arctic Silver's webpage.

Your fan is diffinately not made to handle the head output of a quad core (B3 or G0). I would invest in a better cooler i.e. Tuniq Tower (Best Value) or Thermalright Ultra Extreme (TRUE for best air performance). You should bring your temps down significantly which will enable you to get a bit more frequency out of your CPU.

man ur probably gonna need a better cooler and u really dont have to lap it, thats just if u really want to. the tuniq or TRUE 120 r the best. u need something with a 120mm fan on it so it can cool better. also with your AS5, you need to look up how to apply it for a q6600 because 1 small dot in the center wont help, u need to apply a horizontal thin line across it

Okay update... i figured out a few options...
1 thing i found out and read is the seating process of this cooler is very intricate, and i did it incorrectly.... will fix that...
I bought the sand paper to lap it so i will also do that....
Today i bought the second fan which is out of the box optional and not included, so i will add that to the rear of the fins...

If i can find a camera ill pic up my lapping process and tonight i'll repost with new temperatures..hopefully this will improve them significantly... if not... ill just buy a new heatsink/cooler.

I will do the short curing process... on 45 min off 1 hour.. on 45 min off 1 hour and then see temperatures...

Thanks guys for all the helpful information posted... you guys are great...

well so far the only difference i have gotten is a comparison like this:

Before Idle: 47, 48, 46 47 Before Load: 70,72,69,71 etc...

After Idle: 41,42,43,42 After Load: 65,66,67,66

I'll redo a load test in an hour or two....

Maybe i didnt cure the seat good enough...

I'll try again......
Soon to be leaning towards replacing that beetle rofl.... but i like it soooo much.

will post again soon....

Those load temps aren't too high, its just recomended you dont run over 60 like all day, so if you fold that may not work...

Oh ok thanks... yah... those are the Prime95 load temps....
i only did the test for 1 hour.... 1.30 volts with the vdroop pencil modding for my case.... Im thinking a better curing process will drop it more... since today is still the day i seated it ..... i appreciate your input...


Plus yah on my games temps are only like 52-55 celcius...

I would concentrate on getting your cooler right first, then worry about lapping later. If you don't know how good your thermal paste application and cooler mount is, how will you know how much the lapping helped you?

Also, a bad lap job will make your temperatures worse, so make sure you sand it down to 1500 grit at least if you do it.

Just a quote i found...

"Thermal paste has to cure. It will take 3-5 days to cure in order to achieve maximum effectiveness.
"

"
You must power down your PC during the curing process to enable your CPU to completely cool for a few cycles; i.e. shutdown your PC over night - do not leave it on continuously.
"

This is for the curing process only....

Well, curing doesnt help much, maybe 2C but thats it.
